I picked this outfit because I think it would be gorgeous to wear around a city. I can imagine myself going to a place like Rome (hence 'A Day in Rome') and wondering around all the ruins. The shoes and back pack are for practicality but also look really great on and it just brings everything together.

I've recently joined Polyvore and I'm literally obsessed. If you have it follow me on the link above! It will make creating outfits so easy now - and I will eventually be posting me wearing outfits, but this is when I have time to go outside and shoot it with someone. Also a confidence issue but we'll get passed that eventually.

I can't wait for Autumn, I think it's my favourite season. I love jumpers and boots and that time of year I don't feel so stupid for wearing black all the time. 


 

Skinade | Why I Stopped

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

You may remember a while back I posted a review on Skinade (link here). Since then I've had several questions regarding Skinade and if I still use it. So I'm writing this post to address the question you've been asking. The answer as to whether I still use it is no and I'll tell you why..

The post I did back then was a review on my experience with Skinade so far - I had the 25 day course and I created the post within 2 weeks of using to tell you the changes I had had. I paid for Skinade with my own money and therefore you should not think that my opinion was altered in any way in that review - and regardless of whether I get sent a product my opinion is always 100% honest. I want to strongly put that across to you as a lot of people assume that when you get sponsored posts or sent items for review that you are misguided because of this. However, every PR company should already know that if a product isn't up to expectations we will say so, bearing in mind that what may work for me might not work for you and vice versa. I can only say my experiences and try to be as helpful as I can. If you had bought Skinade because of my review then please let me know how you got on because I would love to know. 

Battle of the Falsh Lash Effect Mascara | Highend vs Drugstore

Monday, 11 August 2014



Mascara is one of those things I can not live without. If I had to choose one product to wear for the rest of my life it would have to be mascara. It can transform any face or any make-up look but it can also make or break a look - spider legs are not O.K. Mascara is the only product I buy at the drugstore - and what I mean is I have several foundations, lipsticks etc but they are mainly high end with a couple of drugstore products mixed in, but I only have drugstore mascara and I will forever have drugstore mascara. I can tell this post is already going to be very controversial because of the huge love for the product but let me tell you why anyway..

Nude Delight

Friday, 8 August 2014


Although I love my monochrome, I have a little obsession with nude. My outfits are very simple in that sense - it might not be what the trends are, but I love it. I've always been told to wear what I'm comfortable in, and if dungarees aren't your thing and you'd rather wear a pencil skirt or trackies then so be it. I can guarantee you'll stand out more when you wear something you're comfortable in rather than trying to fit into the crowd. 

Christian Louboutin Lady Peep Sling Patent  - £625.00. I'm lucky enough to have a very generous boyfriend and I am now the proud owner of the Pigalle Patent Christian Louboutins. Don't ever think this will satisfy you though. It's like some crazy addiction and once you have one pair you need more. These gorgeous heels admittedly will break my neck the second I stand up in them but who needs a neck when you have these, right?

Agent Provocateur Darla Nude Lingerie Set - I'm unsure of how much this is because this is an old season set. Needless to say, it is gorgeous and you can not beat a good lingerie set. I'm sure you can find something similar online. I know I'll be searching high and low!

Topshop Saffiano Tote Bag - £36.00. I really love simple bags. However, they always have to be the size of a house to fit unnecessary things in, of course. I love this one and I think it will be a great addition to anyones wardrobe as it will fit in with most outfits. 

Missguided Beatie Strappy Lace Bralet - £14.99. Missguided are really killing it this season with their bralets and crop tops as I'm sure you've seen all over the fashion blogger community. I've been after a few for a while now, but bills come first sadly. This would definitely be a night out piece for me, and I would team it with the skirt and nude strappy heels!

Missguided Candace Scuba Midi Skirt in Nude - £9.99. At such a great price you can't really go wrong. Dress it up or dress it down it's an extremely versatile piece to have in your wardrobe this year. I work in an office and during the hotter months this type of thing is great if you don't want to flash too much flesh!

What are your nude favourites? Let me know in the comments, I'd love to check them out.




MAKEUP REVOLUTION | Review & Makeup Look

Monday, 4 August 2014
The post that was supposed to go up last week... The absolute struggle! Finally it is here though so grab a cuppa, make yourself comfy and continue reading on...

Some of you may of heard about Makeup Revolution already, I hadn't until they became an absolute storm in the blogging community. Everyone is raving about them and I can now see why. 

I believe there is always room for a new beauty brand. There is always something one brand is missing or doesn't quite meet up to our now very high standards. Especially in the drugstore and high-street make-up brands - they just don't quite satisfy our needs. I know they don't satisfy my needs. Why? Because there is nothing better for me than to go and get a luxurious eyeshadow palette with pigmented shadows and a great colour selection. Maybe that's just me and maybe I'm a snob in that sense but I can honestly say before Makeup Revolution I was a drugstore eyeshadow palette virgin - uh huh guilty. I didn't even have single eyeshadows from the drugstore. The reason for this is probably because there aren't any drugstore or high-street makeup brands that have tempted me enough to buy such palettes, and to be honest there are very few with a good enough content in my eyes to call a palette.
